In the words of my friend, Misty, I'm keeping it real about what's been happening around here! Yes, we are living in a remodel. I must say friends, it's been challenging. When you are living life full speed, with 3 kids, homeschooling, a church family and an aging mother-in-law, add in a remodel- ain't nobody got time for that!!
It's been a trial for sure, but there is great happiness in knowing we did it the Dave Ramsey way - no debt! And there is a lot to be said for that - no waking up in the middle of the night wondering how we would pay the credit card bill - thanks be to God for all His blessings and care!
We are coming to the final stages for the main living area, but it has been the hardest and has had the most impact on day to day life. Everything is out of place, everything has a layer of dust on it, everything is askew...........but this too shall pass. I dream of the day I can have an open house and invite all of our friends to come enjoy a meal with us and sit on real furniture, not camp chairs!
So much prep work has gone into preparing the floor for the hardwood. Here you can see where the floor was 2 different levels. Husband had to add in subfloor to even it up and fill in the gaps with some stuff from Home Depot (I have no clue how to do this stuff!)
Same deal with the kitchen floor- had to even them up!
My beautiful new front door! Every project has had it snags and no different here installing the new front door- wood rot had to be repaired first and even the BRAND NEW DOOR had a flaw in it that husband had to fix in order for it to hang properly. We spent this morning figuring out how to install the new lock!
Yikes! This has been my OOTD for the last several days! Workout clothes! Hey, at least I still got my workouts in! Just never got changed OUT of them. Too busy! One funny thing, while looking like this, my mother-in-law said to me "You are really beautiful, did you know that?" Wow, she must be looking on the heart!
I hope all of you will come back tomorrow and link up for Thursday Target Threads!!! It's a linky party!!
